Unless that's one of the cards with no 2D core at all (and possibly even if it is), you should be able to use the VESA driver, right? Granted, it's not fast, but I do almost nothing but development, and there's virtually nothing (save only 2D scroll rate, perhaps) that would actually be significantly better with acceleration. Of course, that does assume the VESA modes suffice to drive the monitor at its/your preferred resolution. ;-)
